Time is money is an often-used cliché and demands your attention to keep your trucks on the road efficiently and generating revenue. Our webinar will focus in two specific areas, winter diesel operability and REGENS. 

Cold weather management of diesel fuel is a priority of fleet managers to minimize operational down time due to blocked filters, while trying to reduce kerosene usage due to cost and loss of BTU’s and related fuel economy loss. Whether you are running a local service area or long haul, a consistent treatment strategy goes a long way toward reducing the occurrence of vehicles struggling with gelled filters.

Exhaust After Treatment Systems require similar thinking to reduce unscheduled maintenance and keep the fleet in top operating condition. Our session will focus on the cause of regens and how to reduce the occurrence.  The time is money reference is best equated to avoid manual regens, as it reduces a drivers and power units’ efficiency.  But what can be done besides monitoring run hours or mileage intervals to keep the Exhaust After Treatment Systems from untimely service or failing prematurely?

As reported by Transport Topics articles in both 2018 and 2019 site that Fleet roadside repairs and costs have risen on Exhaust repairs. Double digit percent increases from one quarter to another are the leading cause of Exhaust System Repairs. Typical repairs are on diesel particulate filters ( DPF ), selective catalytic reduction ( SCR ), and Exhaust Gas Recirculation ( EGR ) sooting are at the core of these increases. When these exhaust system components get dirty or clogged, the systems do not operate as intended and the unit can experience reduced power, poor fuel economy, excessive manual regens of the DPF, increased emissions, and or engine shutdown.
